1/2 pound cleaned squid, bodies cut into thin rings, tentacles cut into short strips
2 medium tomatoes—peeled, seeded and finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
One 8-inch square sheet of nori (pressed seaweed), cut into 4-by- 1/2 - inch strips
1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
How to Make It
In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the buckwheat noodles until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water and drain again. Toss the noodles with the grapeseed oil and set aside.
In a bowl, stir together the chicken stock, soy sauce, olive oil, fish sauce, mirin, ginger, oyster sauce, garlic, sugar and a pinch of white pepper. Transfer to a large skillet and bring to a simmer over high heat. Add the snow peas and scallion and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the squid, tomatoes and cilantro and stir until the squid is just tender, about 2 minutes. Add the buckwheat noodles and toss until heated through. Season with salt and white pepper and transfer to 4 plates. Top the noodles with the nori strips and parsley and serve.
A medium-weight Chardonnay from Australia or Napa Valley goes with this lively combination of ginger, soy sauce and cilantro.
